Her confident debut in Jawaani Jaaneman (2020) alongside Saif Ali Khan made many sit up and take notice of Alaya F. Looks like Ekta Kapoor was among those impressed by the youngster’s screen presence. The producer has bet big on Alaya as she signed her on for her next film, 'U-Turn'. The thriller, which is the Hindi adaptation of the Kannada hit of the same name, is set to go on floors tomorrow under the supervision of debutant director Arif Khan.

“Alaya was fantastic in her debut film. There’s a self-assured yet vulnerable quality to her that I believe can connect with audiences. U-Turn takes you on a ride with twists and turns galore, and provides edge-of-the-seat excitement,” says Kapoor, happy to have the actor on board. The adaptation will be produced by Cult Movies, the new division launched under Balaji Telefilms to back new-age and edgy content.

Since its release in 2016, the Kannada supernatural thriller has been remade in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Bengali. The story revolves around a reporter who is investigating the case of mysterious deaths of motorists who break a traffic rule on a particular flyover. In her second project, Alaya is excited to give her own interpretation to the role portrayed by Shraddha Srinath and Samantha Akkineni in the past. “It is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with Ekta ma’am so early on in my career, especially for such an interesting project. I feel responsible to be given the task to drive such an intriguing story,” she says.
